Podcast 1.7: Paul and the situation in Galatia

This episode looks at the situation in Galatia that led Paul to write his letter in the mid-first century (part 1 of 2). After Paul left this region of Asia Minor, certain leaders of the Jesus movement had passed through and discovered Gentiles (non-Judeans) who were not circumcized, despite the fact they thought they belonged to this Judean (Jewish) movement. Here I explore the rationale of these opponents of Paul who advocated circumcision as an entrance requirement into the movement and as a symbol of belonging to God's people. This episode is part of series one (”Paul and his Communities”) of the Religions of the Ancient Mediterranean podcast.
